Monographs Details: Licania heteromorpha Benth. var. heteromorpha
Authority: Prance, Ghillean T. 1989. Chrysobalanaceae. Fl. Neotrop. Monogr. 9S: 1-267. (Published by NYBG Press)
Family:Chrysobalanaceae
Discussion:This is the commonest and most collected Amazonian species of Licania. In Prance (1972) I also cited material from Rio de Janeiro for which I was uncertain if it was of cultivated origin or for the Glaziou specimens pirated. A new collection shows that this species is a native of the eastern Brazilian forests and is another Amazon-eastern Brazil disjunct (Fig. 44).
